Case Study - Pigging: Reuse of wastewater for pipeline flushing

A hydrocarbon pipeline required flushing after years without maintenance. To minimise the cost of importing clean water and disposing of dirty water the customer wanted to reuse the water to flush the pipeline clean.

Case Study - Oil water Separator: Bypass & treatment of polluted waste stream

Whilst maintenance was carried out on a customer’s oil/water separator, the system needed to be bypassed to allow the continuation of production. Pollution such as oil, benzene and naptha resulting from several different processes is contained within the customer’s tank containment areas and normally fed into the oil/water separator after rainfall or cleaning.
